It was a soggy start to the Grayshott Women’s Softball Cricket season, as the Strikers headed to Frimley Green Recreation ground to face Frimley Phoenix Fire.

Frimley won the toss and chose to field. Trace & Cat were our opening pair, putting on a good performance with 14 runs, despite losing a wicket. Our next pair was Sophie & Marija – adding 5 to the score, having lost 3 wickets. Kate & Kirsty were the next pair, with their hard work resulting in a net score of 0 thanks to some great bowling from Frimley. The final pair, Al & Cadence added 7, losing 2 wickets. Our net score was 232.

As Frimley opened their batting, the rain held off for our team to get stuck into fielding. With Kirsty taking on wicketkeeper duties, the rest of the team shared the bowling across the 16 overs. With a couple of maiden overs and four wickets bowled, the match was getting tight! It all came down to the last ball…..and, Frimley nicked a single to win the match with a net score of 233 vs 232.

Despite the loss, the Grayshott Strikers were thrilled to be back playing cricket and are looking forward to the next match.

Finally, a big thank you to Mark Weekes who came to umpire for us.
